"It has been my passion for years."


I love to coach basketball because you must use the strengths of individuals to build the strongest teams. You learn to overcome hardships and difficulties each and every day to become stronger in the future. You also realize when you have a commitment to excellence and developing your individual skills, you can maximize your potential and that of the team. I enjoy working with different personalities and try to understand what motivates them to help maximize their success. As a CPA, it is no different, it has been my passion for years to take those skills in coaching to help my clients and my colleagues to become better versions of themselves in the future.
